Brent is saying he does not want moor his boat in a marina unless tires are allowed. I agree. I do not want marina to tell me how to protect my boat. Anything should go as long as it does not hurt their docks or the environment.

Funny thing, there is a 50 foot fishing boat that uses old boogy boards to fend his boat. He even uses the old leash still attached to the boogy board to tie it off. Well they do not work well, only about two inches of hard foam to protect his boat. I do not really care what he uses, but what bothers me is when the boogy board starts to break up and drop into the water adding foam and plastic to our already polluted ocean. I pick up what I can from the water.
